Part I of this volume is a survey of Jewish marriage from biblical times to the present. Rabbi Lewittes covers the various aspects of marriage, from the ceremony itself to the relationship between husband and wife. He highlights the laws of family purity (Taharat Ha-Mishpachah) and discusses the integral role of the Jewish family in Judaism. Part II of this volume deals with divorce in Jewish law and custom. What were the grounds for divorce in the past, and what are they now? What is considered proper divorce procedure, and what documents need be involved? Under what circumstances are husband and wife forbidden to remarry? Even the happiest bride and groom should know the answers to these important questions. Arranged in chronological sequence, using nontechnical language, this volume is accessible to the layman of both Jewish and non-Jewish heritage.
